Convention: Policies, Guidelines and Deadlines

Advisors

  • Each collegiate chapter is strongly encouraged to register their primary chapter advisor to join us virtually.
  • If a primary chapter advisor is unable to attend, we encourage a member of your advisory board to attend instead. 

Alumnae

  • All alumnae are encouraged to join us virtually!

Alumnae Delegates

  • Alumnae chapters in good standing are encouraged to send one delegate and one alternate delegate to vote at Convention. (Good standing is defined as the fulfillment of all financial and reporting obligations including payment of international alumnae dues for at least six members.)
  • Delegates and alternates should be formally elected to represent the alumnae chapter.
  • Each delegate and alternate delegate elected to represent the alumnae chapter must also be in good financial standing (having paid their individual international alumnae dues of $25 or be a Life Loyal member). Alumnae members can pay their international alumnae dues or join Life Loyal when registering.
  • Return the credential information to International Headquarters (IH) by May 29, 2020, to ensure your delegate and alternate are allowed to vote. Click here for information on credentials.
